What goes on in plumbing systems may not be readily something you can observe. But you can minimise clogging your drain pipe by being vigilant about what goes down the drain and acting on the problems when you start to notice them instead of waiting at the last hour.
While clogged drains are inevitable, this is no reason to take the problem for granted.
A clogged drain pipe or sewer line is one of the most cumbersome plumbing problems you can encounter. If left unattended, drain clogs can create havoc on your plumbing system.
When you notice the tell-tale signs of a clogged drain, such as nasty smells, loud gurgling noise, or water draining slowly, check out for the items stuck in there.
Here is a list of the most common items that clog your drain and sewer lines:
- Grease and Fats
- Coffee Grounds:
- Lingering Food
- Paper and Cotton Goods
- Cigarette butts
- Flushable wipes and baby wipes
- Bath Bombs
- House Paint
- Pet Waste
- Hard Water Deposits
A well-maintained drain is essential for the smooth functioning of any household. But improper disposal of items and unintentionally dropping them can clog your drains. There may also be undetected leaks and problems you may not be able to see or notice immediately.
Changing a few habits or getting your hands a little dirty and putting more time and attention into your home’s drains may save you a lot of money down the road.
Here at Fixed Today Plumbing, we’re always available to provide you with the best possible solutions. We can repair your drains or clear them for you. Since we use the latest tools and equipment, we can detect even the difficult blockages and leaks. Our plumbers carry CCTV cameras, jetting equipment, pipe locating equipment, and electric eels. Not only that, but we also kill tree roots through root treatment. Tree roots invading your pipes can also be a big culprit in blocking your drainage system.
Below is our step by step guide on how we best deal with obstructions in your drains of any size and severity.
We conduct a thorough initial assessment and testing to determine the blockage source correctly. From there, the best action plan can be put into place, whether it’s enough to use a plunger or utilise a high-pressure jet blaster on your sewer drain cleaning.
We use a high-pressure jet blaster to remove the obstruction. Jet blasting is the most efficient method of clearing any significant obstacle. A jet blaster is best for clearing stormwater and sewer drains.
After the obstruction is cleared, we use our CCTV drain inspection camera through the piping to accurately report the pipework’s condition. If you damage your pipes, our CCTV drain inspection will identify them.
We may recommend pipe relining, especially for blocked internal drains. This is a no-dig pipe repair.
Your damaged pipework is repaired without extensive excavation and done through a pinhole opening. Pipe Relining is excellent as it costs a fraction of a regular extensive excavation. It can be completed half the time and get your property back to its original state.
